Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a great overall grade, this facility also earned an A+ inspection score. This grade is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also gave this facility a score of A- for our long-term care grade. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 99.73333 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing score includes quite a few factors, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, nursing ratings also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we assessed is short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a solid score in this area, with a B-. Although this wasn't on par with some of its other grades, it is still not the end of the world. Short-term care grades are often used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. We were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.
